Joker Rotten Tomatoes score takes a dip after TIFF early reviews
From possessing a score of 85% in late August, the movie’s Rotten Tomato score has since fallen to 78%. As of this piece, just looking at the top critics alone, about half of them gave the movie a rotten score.
From the 8 minute standing ovation at the Venice Film Festival, to a mere 20 second applause at TIFF, the movie has surely taken a downward trend.
Per Rotten Tomatoes guidelines, a wide release movie needs at least 80 reviews and a 75% rating to be considered Certified Fresh, so Joker is on the cusp of achieving that milestone.
Regardless of how its score sways from here, the divisiveness should only help boost the film's box office projections, since everyone will be curious to see what comes out on October 4th, 2019.
